Healthy Keto Carrot Cake
The base of the cake is as easy as can be and is made in just one bowl and is as light and fluffy as any cake you’ve ever had. With a delicious cream cheese frosting this will become your go-to low-carb carrot cake recipe.
This recipe uses grated carrots. Although root vegetables are generally a no-no when you follow a keto diet, you can use a small amount and still stay within your carb intake. Just keep in mind that if you are trying to lose weight, you should avoid eating too many keto treats and they can stall your weight loss.

Preheat oven to 160 °C/ 325 °F and line a round 23 cm/ 9 inch cake pan with parchment paper. Sweeteners can be used to taste. If you prefer your cake less sweet, reduce the sweeteners to half. Keep in mind that the sweetness of Erythritol is about 70% of sugar, while Swerve is as sweet as sugar.
In a large bowl mix together the dry cake ingredients except for the carrots and pecans. Stir in the wet ingredients until smooth.
Stir in the carrots and pecans.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean (be careful not to overcook).
Remove from oven and let cool completely before frosting.
For the frosting, cream together the cream cheese and whipping cream until smooth using a hand mixer. Add in the powdered Swerve and beat just until combined. If the frosting is too thick add in an additional 2-3 tablespoons of cream, one at a time, until the desired consistency is met. Stir in half of the pecan pieces.
Frost the cake with the icing using an offset spatula.
Sprinkle the remaining pecans over the top and serve.
Store covered and chilled for up to 7 days.
